Don't worry Johnny, you're not alone. It's a great little novelty song. I think the fact that some people don't get its satire makes me like it even more.

thanks Bob! It's good to know you're not alone. One more thing about the tune - it's just a re write of the classic money song and who the hell talks sh*t about that one? Check out the Buddy Guy one on Festival Express or even the Beatles version. Pretty much the same song only reworded, no different than the thousand different Stagger Lee's out there. And as far as sexist, how's it different than Dupree's? And who cares if it's sexist or not? It's still funny as hell. Also reminds me how many women though Women are Smarter was some homage to their greatness instead of being a tongue in cheek take on womens ability to manipulate men.


What you said makes me wonder why Weir shelved it, must have been the band not the fans because he has an admitted perverse pleasure in doing things that rub people wrong ( which I like ). Not quite but almost as good as I remember everyone getting their panities in a bunch that the " Dead" ( or Other Ones I think then ) invited Sammy Hagar up for a tune. I thought it was great all the holier than thous got all upset and then look what happened, he killed on Loose Lucy. At least imo.
